If you change your oil to 10W-40 oil it will help your vehicle increase its gas mileage.  This oil reduces piston resistance in the engine.  Changing the way you drive can also help your gas mileage.  Stop accelerating rapidly this burns gas faster.  Try to never use your brakes as much as possible, stay far enough back from other cars that you coast to a stop.  Whenever you stop a car completely and start up again this burns more fuel.

Try to park your car in a warm place on cold nights.  Gas efficiency during the first five miles when you have a cold engine is half what it would be if it were warm.  Cold oil in the engine is a heavy gelatin that restricts the movement of the engine. Warm oil gets slippery and cause part to move with allot less friction.

Whenever you come to a stop you should turn the engine off instead of waiting.  A engine that idles even for one minute uses more gas than it takes to start the engine up all over.
